Composer extraordinaire Roger Suen has lent his expertise to numerous feature films,
television series, documentaries, and video games. Most recently, Roger reunited with director
Justin Chon to score the MACRO-produced Asian familial drama Blue Bayou, which premiered
at Cannes in 2020 and was acquired by Focus Features, releasing September 2021. Roger
previously worked with Chon on his films Gook (Sundance 2017) and Ms. Purple (Sundance
2019). Film Music Magazine said Roger’s critically-acclaimed score for the 2017 Sundance
award-winning Gook was “powerfully unexpected, musical color” and included it in their Top 10 Scores of 2017.
In 2020 Roger also scored By Whatever Means Necessary, a companion docuseries to The
Godfather of Harlem from EPIX about civil rights era music; as well as Stephon Marbury’s ESPN
documentary A Kid From Coney Island. Coming up, Roger scored additional music for Netflix’s
highly anticipated action thriller Red Notice starring Dwayne Johnson, Ryan Reynolds and Gal Gadot.
Roger’s diverse music portfolio further includes scoring additional music for Guillermo Del
Toro’s four-time Oscar winning film The Shape of Water, the sci-fi thriller The Darkest Minds,
Netflix’s five-time Emmy nominated series Daredevil, and Marvel’s Emmy-nominated series The
Defenders. He also wrote additional music for AppleTV+’s Stillwater, Season 2 and 3 of Charmed,
Krypton, Spider-Man 2, and the Spider-Man: Miles Morales video game.
Through his mastery of orchestral composition and modern electronica, he has created heart
pounding additional music for blockbuster films such as Oscar-nominated X-Men: Days of
Future Past, X-Men: Apocalypse, Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials and Maze Runner: The Death Cure.
Roger’s musical versatility is even more apparent in Sony Pictures’ animated film The Star and
Warner Bros’ comedy The Nice Guys, starring Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling, as he seamlessly
navigates groovy funk to Wagnerian orchestral drama without missing a beat.
A Southern California native, Roger studied music composition as an undergraduate then
graduate student at UCLA and CSUN. He currently resides in Los Angeles.
